1982 is a very solid year. Perhaps the last year where their sound really blended. This was prior to the Mydland calliope tinkle fest, he was mostly using a mellow piano setting, the Garcia chili dog period wasn't yet upon us and Weir hadn't switched to those horrid modulus guitars with the whammy bars.

As for 04-19, this is one of the best 82 shows. The Raven Space is interesting, a bit of Lesh goofiness, however this show should be noted for truly stellar versions of the following: TLEO (Garcia's solos really shine and he takes a double round), Peggy-O, Cumberland and Estimated Prophet. Each one of the top shelf 80s version, particularly the Estimated Prophet which is one of the best versions ever done and includes the reprise jam.

Agreed. I think '82 was the last really solid year for the reasons you mention, and with most shows after '82 I just find it hard to get past Jerry's declining vocals. I know there's a lot of great playing in later years too, but the sound of the band and Jerry's vocals detract from the enjoyment too much for me.

Excellent show and MTX.

I like 83 alot, but it's starting to happen, 84 and 85 can be tough listens sometimes...89 to March 90 or so is the last period where Garcia's playing is top notch, so much so it can overcompensate for the vocal strain...
